“Perfect way to end a trip to Italy!”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Marincanto this past June, and there couldn't have been a better way to end our 10 day trip. Enza at the front desk is truly as amazing as everyone says in their reviews, and she helped introduce us to the hotel and everything Positano has to offer. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms in the hotel, but everything was very nice, and our balcony lovely. Gianni at the pool was fantastic and willing to help with any questions we had. We really enjoyed the pool and all of the different patio options for taking in the sun and view. The breakfast buffet was very good, with varying pastries, cheeses and vegetables each morning. We also had lunch here on our first day and really enjoyed the eggplant parmigiana. Our stay at Hotel Marincanto was definitely a highlight of our trip!

We recently stayed at Marincanto for a week with our 5 children. Although the hotel is not 5 star the service and friendliness of the staff surpassed 5 star. From the bellman to the pool man, everyone is so polite and obliging. One member in particular who is an asset to the hotel is Enza. She is dynamite. Nothing was a problem and she went over and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful time in Positano. Thank you again for all your service. Cheers The Arnold's

This hotel was everything we expected and more. The staff we're amazing, especially Giani who made sure we were very well looked after while we were at the pool or on the terrace.

The view from our room was amazing, the room spacious and very clean and comfortable. We will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 3rd floor - the view is great

We stayed for seven nights at this hotel. The position is very good. The views from almost every room are spectacular. The staff are generally very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was satisfactory for dinner and excellent for breakfast. Snacks are served throughout the day.

The only negative was that all of the hotel guests sunbathing on the terrace (and there were many) were told to leave one afternoon to enable drinks to be held for a small wedding, which also took over most of the hotel restaurant. The paying guests should not be treated like this.

Nevertheless this hotel is highly recommended.

My husband and I spent 6 nights here recently and loved it!! We got upgraded to a room with a huge spa and balcony overlooking the ocean. The rooms are really old school, but quite funny and very comfortable. Breakfast is great- pastries, eggs and meats. The pool is beautiful and there's a whole sun ain't deck overlooking the water. Great location- a few minutes from centre of town. Very friendly and helpful staff. I needed a doctor in middle of the night and they called one and made sure everyday I was ok after that. We'll be back!

Room Tip: Room 216 is the master suite!! Fantastic.

We arrived at the hotel with another couple who was on their honeymoon. We only booked a superior room but somehow we were upgraded to the suite, Room 216. This room was at the top right and had 2 balconies, one that was from the bathroom with a huge jacuzzi tub. We had a living room, bedroom with a king bed and a hug walk in closet. It was a great room. The decor itself was a tiny bit dated but all hotels in Italy are older and not as fancy as in the US. The wifi was not great in the rooms-it kept going in and out. The grounds were beautiful. The pool was perfect as was the sundeck. Giani took care of us with great service. We had a nice lunch on the terrace and dinner was pretty good too with amazing views. There were 300 steps to the beach. The beach area was nice but the rocks on the beach made it difficult to navigate because they were sharp and super hot. There is a great pizza spot on the walk to the other beach. Dinner was great at Da Vincenzo's which was a hike but worth it. Also La Tagliata was a restaurant up in the mountains-they send a shuttle to pick people up from various hotels. We booked a private 2 hour boat tour of the Amalfi coast and it was perfect.

Had a perfect 4 night stay at the Hotel Marincanto. It's simply bellisimo!! The hotel and location are picture postcard paradise! We had an ocean view suite (worth the extra $) with 2 outside terraces & a jacuzzi tub - very comfortable & lovely accommodations. The staff at the hotel were superb - Enza & Antonella took great care of us (with excellent restaurant & excursion recommendations); and Carmine & Johnny (by the pool) catered to our every need with regards to afternoon cocktails, making us comfortable at the pool & sun deck, & helping us with our car & luggage. Breakfast was included with our rate - and it was a nice buffet with lots of healthy choices. The outside restaurant is wonderful as well - a great spot to have lunch. The hotel's infinity pool is simply gorgeous. The beach is right below the resort -- though be prepared to walk up & down lots of stairs (we didn't mind this - as it was our daily workout).. The resort is close to some terrific restaurants (check out - Bruno - which is across the street (fabulous gnocchi & pasta); La Cambusa (fabulous seafood), La Pergola (nice casual dining); and Covo dei Saraceni (great pizzas, calamari, and salads). We also went to Il Ritrovo Ristorante up in the hills of Montepertuso - which was simply awesome! Gorgeus views with amazing food - and we got to experience the festivities of the Feast of the Virgin Mary -- which included a fantastic fireworks display! Wonderful shopping is close by - within walking distance. Enza recommended a private boat cruise for us to Capri on board the La Lucia - and it was out of this world! This was a perfect way to end our 2 week Italian vacation. We would highly recommend this spot to anyone considering visiting the Amalfi Coast. You will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: Get an ocean view room with a terrace. Awesome way to enjoy breakfast or an afternoon/evening cockta...
